Thank the Spaniards for this one: they use the white Palomino varietal for making sherry. It landed on our shores (and winelands) and immediately disappeared into obscurity. Palo-what? Exactly. Luckily for us there are winemakers like Francois Haasbroek who knows a good grape from a bad hangover and came across this 90-year old vineyard, cranked out an awesome, idiosyncratic wine that is unlike anything you’ve had before. What does it taste like? Fresh, crunchy acidity and pure, delicious fruit (apple, citrus, kiwi) with a soft viscosity (you may need to decant the bottle to remove this!). It’s natural wine, it’s alive and kicking – get some !
